The Voices Spoke Only To Her

This week we have a fabulous set from Wendy Vecchi to work with, The Voice Of Art set from Creative Expressions.

I decided on an inky background this time around using Distress Stains and blending a little Distress Ink around the edges. I also added a little stamping from the Art Rules set.
I cut three circles from my background using Spellbinders Standard Circles and added the sentiment "The voices spoke only to her....." For my matting and layering, I coloured a piece of white glossy card with Distress Ink fired brick and added machine stitching to the edge for a little more interest.
I then stamped my young lady onto white card stock with coffee Archival Ink and added to the background.  To lift the background a little I added a little white highlighting with a white pen.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the weekend. Tracy x x

Love the background and areas of interest that the circles provide - though I'm convinecd that the voices only speak to me...!
